Q: I like the new Home Page, but how do I do find your Trivia, Riddles and Kids Rids -
and the view of the thumbnail images that you had on your previous Home Page?
A: You're referring to the rollout of our new Home Page on May 2, 2014. I've kept the
previous Home Page format intact (i.e. prior to May 2, 2014), and you can still go to
that previous format by either of the following:
- selecting Menu Option: Joe-ks / Newest; or
- use the URL: http://www.joe-ks.com/newest.htm.
Take a look at the daily postings - at the very top there are now TWO options:
for instance, using Duck Gears as a reference, you can see there are
two links now in the very top:
- joe-ks.com (which goes to the most recent home page); and
- Newest (which goes to the view you were previously used to).

Why did I make the change?
Way too many people thought that the old Home Page was too cluttered and
had way too much stuff on it... can't please everyone, BUT I did try to please everyone by
keeping the previous view live as well as implementing the new Home Page -
both views are the same, and regularly updated...

Q: What's with the flashing red light on the home page?
A: In November 2015 we added a one-on-one Chat session using the excellent talk.to app. It's not only on the top of the home page (as you've noted), but also on daily page posts. The idea is similar to the red 'hot light' at Krispee Kreme donuts, except that when you see the red light flashing @ joe-ks.com it means that the Joe-kster is available for one-on-one chats.

Q: How many categories do you have on your site?
A: As of May 2014 we have more than 160 categories, and we're
constantly adding to the list. You can find links to all of these categories at
the bottom of the new Home Page.

Q: Where can I find your new Word Search puzzles?
A: Here's the link for our Word Search Puzzles.

Q: A friend of mine mentioned that your site has more than ten thousand
Inspiration, Fear and General Quotes - where can I find them?
A: You can find them using the menu @ top of the Home Page: Word Play / Quotes, or
here's the direct link for our Quotes
and you may want to check out the Phrase section for interesting Phrase Origins.

Q: I'm looking for a list of Phobias - can you help me?
A: We have more than 1,000 Phobia Fears...

Q:  “Do you have an FAQ section for your
Sudoku puzzles?
A:  Go to Sudoku Puzzle FAQ Section

Q:  “Where does 'joe-ks' come from?
A:  Think of 'jokes', but scramble the letters to arrange it for
Joe the Joe-kster's first name... hence 'Joe' - ks  (joe-ks.com)
Have you ever gone to other humour sites to end up with a garbled
mess of ads surrounding a few jokes... followed by unwanted
popup windows? The joe-ks.com site was designed  for CONTENT
and NOT for annoying popup ads...
We pride ourselves on your privacy. It's taken 14 years
to arrive at a place where the Joe-kster is confident that
joe-ks.com provides you with the largest selection
of groaner joe-ks & humour on the internet - to allow you to find

Q:  How do I change my email address in your joe-ks.com Subscriber list?
A:  See details @  Changing your email address

Q:  “I'm a subscriber to your email subscription service and really enjoy
your joe-ks, but I find it a lot of work to 'cut and paste' all of the website links
in your subscriber email. What can I do? (I use aol)

A:  When we first sent out our email to our email subscribers, we sent out complete text (for text joe-ks) and all the images & video clips. We received a lot of feedback
that our readers did NOT want large files sent to them - that it took up too much space
on their email accounts. So we revised our email subscription format to send out only
links (or URL addresses) for each of the website pages. That has worked out quite well,
and each email is usually < 10k in size. Note that ALL of the URL addresses in
our subscriber email should show up IN YOUR EMAIL as 'active links' - links that all
you have to do is to click on them and you will be automatically taken to the page you want...
If the subscriber email you receive DOES NOT contain 'active links', let us know about it
and we'll try to help you out - also see our 'Active Link URL' section where other users
can tell you how they found a work-around for this...

Q: 
When I click on a link, I get a small popup window, and all
I can see are more links...  Help!!!  I can't get to any of your joe-ks!!!

A:  We suggest the following:
1.  Enlarge the “small popup window
to its full size;
2.  Use the scroll bar (right side of screen on Windows computers) to scroll down
to the joe-ks which are on the BOTTOM of the screen
(that's because I've added site links at the top of each text joe-k);  and
3.  The problem is related to the screen size you're using:  this site works best
at a screen size of 1024 X 768 or 1152 X 860 pixels
 (... it doesn't look near as good at screen resolutions of 640 X 480  or  800 X 768)...
ask a computer “geek
to help you fix your screen size!

Q:  “On your license plate section, my plate doesn't line up properly - why?
A:  Have a look at the very bottom of the license plate section screen:
if it's not horizontally aligned on the last row, your screen resolution is too low.
The problem is related to the screen size you're using:  this site works best
at a screen size of 1024 X 768 or 1152 X 860 pixels
 (... it doesn't look near as good at screen resolutions of 640 X 480  or  800 X 768 -
AND the license plate section is misaligned @ lower screen resolutions)...
ask a computer
“geek to help you fix your screen size!
Printing Page Alignment:  Set your page setting left & right borders to 0.3"...

Q:  “Where do you get all those groaners?

A:  We get them through site users from all over the world, receiving
hundreds of e-mail messages per day - with approximately 80% of the received joe-ks
already being on the site;  15% of them unusable (refer to what makes them
“usable
below);  and 5% that are joe-kster material!
For a user who submits several real groaners that are placed on the site,
I add their name to my
Honourable Mention page! 
(note the
“u in Honourable, eh!)

Q: 
What makes a joe-k usable for your site?
A:  The Joe-kster “usually
follows the “Wifey Acceptable re accepting joe-ks for the site -
have a look at the “Wifey Rule
(from a March 14, 2001 'Delta Optimist' article, Tsawwassen, B.C.)!

Q: 
Great search engine you've added! Why can't I find some of your newest
joe-ks with the search engine?

A:  The search engine was added to the site in June 2003 - thanks to
the following: (1) “Google Hacks
(Calishain & Dornfest);
(2) “
JavaScript Goodies (Burns & Growney);  &  (3) Google's
incredible technology (... and a “
little bit of experimenting
by the Joe-kster)!
FYI that this search engine is solely based on information gathered
by Google through its own web robots, spiders, crawlers & other sources
of creeping information gathering... As such, continued web robot
searching (by Google) is done on a random basis, sometimes a month
between search updates...
B:  January 2005 - we've just updated joe-ks.com with Google's new
& superb web & site-specific search engine - enjoy!
No more restrictions about how to control your search parameters -
just “Google-ize
it!

 

Q:  “Can you send your jokes to my e-mail address?
A:  Joe-ks.com started a mailing list option in January 2004.
ALL information obtained from users will be kept
strictly confidential, and all e-mail joe-ks sent out will:
(1) have NO internal advertising within the e-mail message;
(2) contain ONLY LINKS (i.e. there will be NO file attachments),
so the file size will be MINIMAL;
(3) distribution will be kept to a maximum of 2 times/week to ensure
that we don't overload any of our users who already have full e-mail boxes;
(4) there will be NO SPAM: this will be strictly monitored by the
Joe-kster himself to ensure our site's integrity; and
(5) you can be assured that your e-mail address will remain confidential and
will NOT be given to anyone else or any other business or organization.

Q:  “I'm on your e-mail list, but I don't have time to read my e-mail - how can I unsubscribe?

A:  Click on this link to  Unsubscribe  from the joe-ks.com e-mail list...
 

Q:  “What's happened to all of the movie clips?
A:  Our internet service provider says our bandwidth has reached
sky-high proportions which is great news for us (we've been working for 10 years
to reach 2 million hits/month!), but along with that comes a staggering
increase in our site bandwidth costs. We DO have video clip files within sections,
but not a single-page listing for them!

Q:  “How can I tell which are the newest joe-ks?

A:  Several users have requested a quick way to know
which joe-ks are the most recent...
As of January, 2007 we started placing a
 image beside 'New' joe-ks...
FYI - at the start of each calendar year, all previous
images will be deleted:
So
when you see
images, those joe-ks
were put on joe-ks.com during the current year
...
Therefore, on January 1st of each year you'll see very few
images
as we 'reset' the 'Newness' of the site...
If you want to know which are the most POPULAR, have a look
at the Home page where a user “Top Ranking
shows the most
popular image and video clip files...

A:  Contact the joe @ joe-ks.com  for a quote.
Our present main source of revenue comes from users like yourself
clicking on the Google ads seen at the bottom of most joe-ks.com pages -
please have a look at those Google-recommended sites, and support

Q:  “Are your joe-ks in the public domain?

A:  © joe-ks.com 1995-2012
Most text joe-ks are assumed to be in the public domain. Unless otherwise noted, graphics and
artwork are copyright joe-ks.com and are not to be reproduced without permission.



Q:  “Can I use one of your joe-ks for my newspaper article?

A:  Without exception, we do not authorize use of any of our material for 'for-profit'
publication, through newspapers or any other form of media.
Unless otherwise noted, graphics and artwork are
copyright joe-ks.com and are not to be reproduced without permission.
We do not give out any personal contact information
(from those who have sent us material for our site), nor do we forward
email requests to them - we don't have enough support staff to respond to
the many such requests that we receive.



Q:  What about Copyright issues related to image files?

If you believe that your copyrightable work is being displayed on this site and is violating
copyright regulations - please advise us immediately and we will remove it.


November 2004: A disgruntled anonymous reader suggests that joe-ks.com is using
pirated images from other sites. Please be advised that we DO NOT knowingly use
anyone else's copyrighted material.
If you can prove to us that you know of an image which is copyright -
AND that that image was copyright BEFORE it was sent to joe-ks.com, we'll gladly either
(A) give notice to the originator(s) of same on our “Honourable Mention
page &
accredited correctly per your request, or
(B) we'll remove it from our site (provided you send us entire copyright details/links).
We're doing our best to track down the originators of every one of our images -
let us know if you can help. We'd love to hear from non-anonymous readers
who enjoy Humour/Humor and not Whine/Sour Grapes...
As to that same anonymous reader who points out that we don't know how to spell
Honourable - he/she's right! Neither do we know how to spell Dubm - or Joe-ks,
but that doesn't stop the
humour or our reader's enjoyment of same around here...
Lighten up - we're a joe-ks site!



Q:  Love the new 'GR8 Site Links' page, but I've noticed a few dead links...

We receive many references to other sites' links, and for those which we consider as
'GR8 links', we add them to our 'GR8 Site Links' section. Why don't we add them to our own
site sections? Because we've found that - for especially the very popular links - its own
popularity is sometimes its own downfall, leading to either deletion of their link, or
re-routing to another URL.
PLEASE NOTE:  We have NO control over these external links!
If you notice a 'Dead Link', please let us know by sending an email to us - details @
Dead Links Submission
and we'll either delete it or try to find another equivalent URL for it.



Q:  “I've found more up-to-date information for one of your articles / groaners.
I'd like to send the correct info to you so that you can have it corrected...

A:  We've added a “Corrections
section at the bottom of the  Honourable Mention
page. Send us your feedback & we'll correct the article & recognize you online for
your assistance!

Q: 
Some of your joe-ks aren't funny - why?

A:  Re: Bear-ly Surviving A Poletop Electrocution & Truck Stuck
Several of the movie clips in the
Safety and Bizarre sections would also
classify as not being 'funny'. We've put them there mainly as a result of
requests from several safety & training instructors who work directly
with safety-related work. These type of clips are NOT meant to offend
anyone, but to let people know of extreme hazards (in the 'Poletop Electrocution' re
electrical hazards; and in the 'Truck Stuck' re motorcycle safety).
We're sorry if any of these clips offend anyone!
The fellow who sent us the Bear-ly Surviving clip works in B.C. Hydro's Fire and Safety
department, and mentioned that it would be great for our site...
As well, a few of our groaners seem - to some people - as
too serious and
not funny (i.e.  Treasure Every Moment) ... once in a while we like
to pass on 'special' stuff to our valued browsers!

Q:  What is your Privacy Policy?
 What's with the Google ads on your pages?
A:  Confucious says, “Man cannot live on expenditure alone...

Interest-based advertising allows advertisers to show ads based on a user's previous
interactions with them (such as visits to an advertiser website) and also to reach users
based on their interests (e.g.
sports enthusiast). To develop interest categories,
Google will recognize the types of web pages users visit throughout the Google content
network. As an example, if they visit a number of sports pages, Google will add them
to the
sports enthusiast interest category.
